In 1865 in Le Locle, Switzerland visionary watchmaker George Favre-Jacot was driven by the idea of creating the most accurate and reliable watches of his time. He revolutionised the way of producing timepieces by erecting spacious and luminous buildings and by bringing together the entire range of watchmaking professions under one roof. Zenith is the first brand to have developed, in 1969, a high-frequency automatic integrated column-wheel chronograph powered by the legendary El Primero movement beating at 36,000 vibrations per hour. This obsession with precision as well as this constant quest for technical innovation have been duly rewarded; the Manufacture has been awarded 2,333 chronometry prizes as well as eight medals - making it the most titled brand in the field of precision.
